How to Fix Holes in Jeans

Jeans are kind of trousers prepared from the fabric called denim. Jeans were intially designed for labors; it became popular among youngsters in the late 50s. The historic brands of jeans are Lee, Wrangler and Levi’s. Jeans are available in various types like skinny jeans, flare, straight fit, boot cut, etc.

Jeans have become very popular as a form of casual dressing around the globe. Jeans comes in many designs, styles and colors. ‘Blue jeans’ are mostly associated with American culture, mainly in the American Old West.

The term jeans have been derived from the French phrase ‘bleu de Genes’, which means the blue of ‘Genoa‘. Jeans or denim fabric has come independently from two places; from the French town of Nimes, and from India, where pants are prepared from denim material and it was used by the sailor of Dhunga, which was later known as ‘dungarees’. If you want to repair jeans, then just follow the instructions mentioned below.
how to repair jeans

Things required:

* Iron-on seam fabric
* Hot iron
* Denim patch
* Appliqué
* Needle
* Thread
* Thimble
* Cloth


* Repair small hole in jeans with the help of a needle and thread. This works fine for hole less than 2-inches in length. You can use a thimble on your middle finger to help in approaching the needle through the thick fabric and turn the jeans inside out to repair the hole. Now, stitch the hole carefully by using thread which matches the color of your jeans.

* You can also make your kid’s torn jeans look stylishly shabby-chic. Make a square of thick fabric, a little larger than the size of the hole of the jeans. Find the hole and cut a portion of heat pressure ridge fabric as the same size of the square cloth. Put the ridge fabric over the hole and carefully sketch the whole outline onto the fabric.

* Take out the center of the ridge fabric, following the outline and cutting around 1/3 inch on the outside of the line. By creating the hole in the ridge fabric that is larger than the hole in the jeans, you allow only the colored fabric to be demonstrated.

* Place the ridge fabric back on the hole, carefully lining up the hole so that the damaged part of the jeans shows through properly. Place the colored fabric square uniformly on the top and press with hot iron, keeping in mind not to move the fabric while pressing.

* Patch small hole or splits in the jeans of girls by stitching an attractive appliqué over the hole. Most of the appliqués consist of an iron-on support and you can employ an iron to stick them onto their appropriate place. However, you will have to stitch around the exterior of the appliqué to make it secure.

* You can also use denim scraps for holes in work jeans. You can purchase the denim patches at any stitching center or store. Iron them on the outside of the jeans, sticky side down. Denim patches are good to cover the hole or tear in the jeans.

Tips and Warnings:

* If you don’t have much time to stitch your jeans, then you can use denim patches and simply iron it on them or vice versa.

* If you using the stitching method, then you can use any kind of attractive fabric you like in the place of the denim patch.

How to Get the Perfect Red Lip

Like the little black dress, red lipstick is timeless and classic. Most of us are guilty of smearing it on when we snuck into our mom’s bedroom to play dress up in her high heels and jewelry. Fast-forward to today, and a red lip is a stunning way to stand out in the crowd. Of course no one will think it’s cute when it’s globbed on at this age, so we’re going to take you through a step-by-step process to find the perfect shade and flawlessly apply it.


Many girls struggle to choose, let alone figure out the differences, between a stick and a stain. Lip stain simply dyes your lips with color, creating a more natural look. It’s long lasting and won’t smudge. A lipstick is waxy, so it appears as a layer over your lips. It can smudge onto your skin and teeth, and typically requires reapplication. There are pros and cons to each product, but to be honest, I die for my Maybelline Color Sensational Lip Stain in Cherry Pop. It’s a marker tip, so it allows for easy application, and the color stays on all night. If you’d rather wear lipstick, a selection from MAC is our recommendation.


A true, rich red will flatter all skin tones. So when in doubt, reach for that classic shade of red. But, if you’re looking for a uniquely perfect shade, check out MAC, Sephora or a department store counter. The makeup artists will guide you in finding a shade suitable for you skin color, plus, you’ll be able to take them for a test run. If you’d rather not spend the extra money, drug-store brands really do work just as well. Check out this guide to make finding your ideal color a lot simpler.


If you have…

* Fair skin, stick to lighter shades with a hint of pink. The fairness of your skin matched with the subtle shade of red won’t overwhelm your face, and it will bring out the rosy undertones of your skin. Scarlett Johansson proves how beautiful the traces of pink work well with your skin. She also illustrates how to work a red lip, which achieves a true Hollywood glam look. So go bold if you feel comfortable!
* Medium skin, you have golden undertones which really help your case. A wide variety of colors will work for you. But, if you want those undertones to pop, choose a shade with just a hint of orange. Those with medium or olive skin, truly can work with a range of colors. Jessica Alba looks amazing in an orange tinted red, dark red and bright red.
* Dark skin, you’re going to look great in darker and deeper shades. Burgundy, rouge and ruby are among the best shades to choose from. Since a super bright shade is an unflattering contrast, try a pearly red. The shimmer will make the color appear brighter where the light reflects it. Rihanna is always playing with lip color and looks especially amazing in a dark berry or ruby red. She also pulls off the classic red look exceptionally well.


Before applying your new lipstick, you’ll want prepare your lips for a longer-lasting color. Exfoliate gently with your toothbrush and some warm water. This will clear off excess skin so the color goes on smoother. Keep your lips moisturized with a thin layer of chapstick.

*Don’t try this if your lips are chapped, since red lip color tends to suck out moisture. Instead, the night before you plan on working this look, apply my favorite lip moisturizer, Eucerin’s Aquaphor Healing Ointment (available at drugstores), and in the morning you’ll be good to go!


Apply your lipstick or lip stain. Always start at the center of your lip and spread the product outward. If you are using lipstick, consider using a lip brush to apply the color to the corners of your mouth and to define your cupid’s bow. Using your fingers works to. In fact, a makeup artist informed me years ago that your fingers are the best tools for makeup! If your using a lip stain, take caution to how much you are using. If you happen to apply it outside your lips, immediately take a Q-tip with some warm water and a tiny bit of soap to rub it away. Don’t forget to throw your product into your purse in case you need any touch ups throughout the night!

The rest of your make up doesn’t necessarily need to be minimal, but definitely should have a neutral palette. Check out how your favorite celebrities wear the look. Some pair it with minimal makeup and others go all out. Go-to looks like the smoky eye and cat-eye eyeliner are classically perfect matches to the sexy red lip. A red lip is a bold statement, so make sure your main accessory for the night is the confidence to own your new look!
